Good Morning! I hope you had a good weekend. Today I’m sharing the Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes card that I made during my Facebook Live yesterday afternoon. This pretty bundle is so versatile and fun to play with. I based my card on a similar one in the Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog, but made a flower with lots of dimension! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made the card:
I posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel here so you can view it there if you prefer.
I adhered a panel of Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to the front of a Misty Moonlight card base. I embossed a Seaside Spray panel with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and cut it with the second largest Stitched with Whimsey die. I adhered it to the front of the card with multipurpose liquid glue.
I cut the flowers from the Dandy Wishes Dies in the Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes bundle from Bumblebee card stock and colored the stem with the Mossy Meadow Stampin Blend. I cut the lacy flower from vellum. I cut the dandelion leaves from Mossy Meadow and grass leaves from Garden Green. I adhered the Vellum to the card front with a glue dot in the center. I gently bent the petals up in the Bumblebee petal clusters and adhered them together with glue dots and finished the center with a little octagon colored with the Mango Melody Stampin Blend. I adhered the Bumblebee flower next to the Vellum flower so that the tips of the petal covered any visible glue dot. I adhered the grasses and leaves to the card front with glue dots, starting with the long grass, the leaves next and finishing with the short grass on top. I also trimmed the bottom of the stems so they’re even with the grass bottoms.
I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes cling stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink on a strip of Basic White and trimmed the ends with the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch. I adhered the label to the card front with dimensional and accented it with a short length of Bumblebee Gingham trim tied with a Linen Thread bow. I finished the card front with a little bumble die cut from the Dandy Garden 6″x 6″ DSP.
For the inside, I stamped the dandelion from the Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes stamp set in twice stamped off Mossy Meadow ink on a Basic White panel. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of Dandy Garden DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
The Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes bundle is really great for making with Spring cards! I spent some time in my garden this week and found a few budding dandelions that I pulled and they reminded me of this pretty suite, so I knew I had to pull it out. I love the contrast of the modern, angular die cut flower with the fine line drawn images – so many ways to use this pretty bundle!
